Tripp Lite’s B040 Series NetController Rackmount Console KVM switches are a cost effective and highly flexible system for controlling up to 128 computers from a single 19” display console. Available in 8port or 16port, these consoles can be daisy chained with Tripp Lites stand-alone B042 NetController series KVM switches via dedicated daisy-chain ports. Switching between attached servers can be accomplished with on console push buttons, On Screen Display menu, or Hot-Key.

Utilizing Tripp Lites P780 series super slim KVM cables ( not much thicker than a standard Cat5 patch Cable…ordered seperately), KVM cabling is kept to a minimum and extremely manageable. Cables are double duty, attaching to either PS/2 or USB based computers, without purchasing additional adapters. An additional USB port is provided, allowing attachment of an external mouse to be used in lieu of the provided console touch-pad.

The B040 Console KVM switches support a wide variety of software platforms, including: MAC, DOS, Windows 95/98/SE/NT/2000/ME/XP/Server2003/Vista, Linux, Unix, and BSD. Password feature provides additional security to prevent unauthorized access to attached computers. All hardware included for 4-post racking, and designed for easy, one person installation. Fits into any rack from 29” to 42” deep. 2-post rackmounting available using Tripp Lite B109-000, 2-post rackmount kit.

Tripp Lite 8-Port Rack Console KVM Switch VGA 1U w/ 19" LCD TAA is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, reliable KVM for server rack I have been using this rack mounted KVM for sometime now. The large screen and easy to use keyboard makes it a nice addition to our closet. We haven't had any problems with it sense it was installed. My only "complaint" is that the indicator on the screen to show you which computer you are on would be better if it would be easy to either turn off, have it show when you switch but disappear after a couple seconds or be able to position it in a different location. That is the one and only thing that keeps be from giving this a strong 5 star. Everything else is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and works flawlessly I've had other rackmounted KVM monitor devices from other vendors that I've paid much more for, that didn't work as well as this one. Simple to set-up, just connect the right wires to the devices you want to connect and boom, you're done. I've had absolutely no problems with this device. I would absolutely recommend this device to my colleagues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product for the most part I have found that this KVM switch works quite well, the only thing that is a bit annoying is that the USB mouse I have connected sometimes just stops working, but then I just unplug the mouse and plug it back in and it is working fine. This does not happen all the time just every now and then. The only other issue I have is that some times the auto adjust does not cooperate very well and some of my screens are to high to low or off to the right. Usually I just unplug power from the unit for a moment and plug back in and I am good to go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ease of Use Very intuitive to set up and use. Couple of minor issues. Screen was a little too bright. Caused a bit of resolution loss. Had to run CD/Owners Manual to figure out how to change the title per port. Otherwise it's highly recommended.
